Congratulations to our Junior Boys cross country teams who competed last week in the county championships at Thurles Crokes athletics club. Our u14 team consisting of Aaron Fogarty, James Fogarty, Brian O’Halloran, and Cillian Donaghy ran the 1400 metres event and finished third. Our u15 Boys team performed equally well and likewise finished with bronze medals. Aaron Maher, Bill Hogan, Patrick Doyle, and Joe O’Donoghue were successful in this competition, running the 1500 metres event. Thanks also to members of staff Mr. O’Brien and Mr. Fahy.


‘Bile je prekrasno’ and ‘Es hat mir sehr gut gefallen’. These were the comments from two of our non-national EF (Education First) students from transition year in relation to the recent G.A.A. youth forum held at the Dome in our school. Both Korina Lic and Pia Vasso from Croatia and Germany respectively thoroughly enjoyed this forum. Students Gavin Dunne and Curtis Ryan were also in attendance.


Our snr football team are looking forward to an important match this Friday as they prepare to play against Carrick-on-Suir CBS in the county quarter-finals.


Last Friday in our assembly area we saw a vast array of goods for sale as part of the enterprise program organised by Business Teacher Ms. Bergin. All students from 1st 6th year had on sale cakes, hand made chocolates, Christmas wreaths, milk shakes etc. 10% of all earnings went to the charity ‘Barnardos’. Maith sibh.
